Query Count Update-Obama Pulls Away From McCain

November 1, 2008

The election is finally going to happen in a few days.  Are people searching for the candidates more than the were last time we looked on the Obama-McCain Search Query Counts October 19 and Obama-McCain Search Query Counts October 21?

Interest in Obama continues to accelerate, while query counts for McCain have grown only slightly.  Obama continues to widen the gap in the world of query attention.

Looking once again at the interest in McCain and Palin shows that they are running even.

I added a few misspellings to the queries so, while the patterns are similar, the absolute numbers have likely changed a bit. Recent data is from pool of about 90K unique users per day searching on all major search engines and some little known engines as well. Searches on e-commerce sites are included as well.

    Interestingly Yahoo! is only showing a 2:1 margin for Obama searches.

    Like reality, Dr. Skippy may have a liberal bias.
